Bottom Line:   
THE PV-1 IS PART OFA LONG LINE OF GREAT PRE AMPS BULIT BY CONRAD JOHNSON. THIS THE FRIST IN THERE LINE OF GREAT PRODUCTS AND AFTER OWNING OTHER PRODUCTS BY ELECTROCOMPANIET , NAIM , ET AL. I STILL THINK THIS ONE TELLS THE TRUTH. RE -TUBE AND GO!! IF YOU CAN FIND ONE GET IT. THE SONUD IS RICH AND WARM AND IF YOU LOVE 50'S AND 60 'SJAZZ THIS IS YOUR PREAMP. WITH VINYL THE PV1 GIVES YOU SOUND IN THREE DEMENSIONS. THE PERFORMERS ARE RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU. MUSIC SOUNDS REAL AND FULL OF LIFE BILL AND LEW GOT IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME AROUND. NOW I WILL SAY I DID OWN ACJ PV10 FOR A SHORT WHILE (1 YR.) AND I FOUND IT TO BE A BIT BRIGHT COMPARED THE OLDER BROTHER. MORE NEUTRAL? MAYBE BUT INSTRUMENTS JUST SOUND RIGHT TO ME ON THE PV1. SO FIND ONE IN GOOD SAHPE AND GET SOME NEW 12AX7'S AND AWAY YOU GO HAPPY LISTENING!!
